The AmericaJR Web Team recently visited the German town of Frankenmuth, Michigan. It is a vacation destination with plenty of fun things to do. They have great restaurants, shopping, festivals, and events. In 1990, Frankenmuth, also known as “Michigan’s Little Bavaria,” celebrated its first Oktoberfest. The Frankenmuth Oktoberfest celebrates German culture, heritage and love.  Bronner’s Christmas Wonderland, which bills itself as “the World’s Largest Christmas Store“, is located in Frankenmuth. Zehnder’s Holzbrücke (German for wooden bridge) is a wooden covered bridge, built in a style similar to that of the Black Forest or a river valley in Switzerland, located over the Cass River in the middle of town.
